All creations, great or small, have a limited lifespan. BONEYARD is a visually captivating and richly informative new series from THE HISTORY CHANNEL® that uncovers the beneficial afterlife of our age's defunct technology. From trains to ships to demolition debris, learn the innovation, creativity and technical prowess that make waste useful again.
After the gavel has fallen, the sentence is passed and the cell's door slams, what happens to the loot? While it's true that crime doesn't pay, it is also true that it leaves a lot of useful stuff - from weapons and valuables, to technology and information - in its wake.
Visit the BONEYARD where crime's ill-gotten gains are repurposed for the greater good. See how crime's refuse is mined for everything from secure warehouses to underwater tourist attractions to computer databases.
In this BONEYARD, some seized property becomes tools to fight crime, some is destroyed and some is transformed to create good from the ruins of evil.
Whatever its fate, it was never what the criminals had in mind, and it's always fascinating.
